Blocking Spam Bots in Referral Analytics602

It's never ending. The spam bots keep showing up in my Google Analytics results...which skews the actual traffic numbers ... if you can about those things. And, I do.

It occurred to me that somebody might have created a plugin to install on WordPress sites to block these annoying hits from appearing in Google Analytics.

Sure enough there is - It's called GM Block Bots. Run, don't walk and install it IF you don't want to see these spam bots show up in your analytics numbers. I did.

How dramatically do the spam bots skew the analytics?

A lot! There are some 400+ spam bots now that want you to think you are getting traffic when you are not.
